Do I have to care?

Been doing nothing the whole day and....damn, it feels good! I mean, I've never permitted myself the 'luxury' of doing absolutely nothing without feeling guilty about it. And today, I allowed myself to do that. I continued my little story and I also managed to play some songs on my piano. I mean, this is what I love and when I did it, it felt incredible. Like having your cake and eating it too. 
That's how human beings should live their lives, in my personal opinion. 
I don't care and don't have to care what others think because I am not a ferrari car....as in, I could be a BMW....or a Kelisa and I don't have to let others try to mold me into something different. I don't have to let them screw around with my head, trying to make me think that I should be a ferari car when all I want to be is a Kelisa, you know what I mean. There's absolutely nothing wrong with being a Kelisa if I am built like a Kelisa. 
That's the problem with Asian people's thinking - everyone's trying to define what each other should do....which will eventually lead to kiasuism. I wonder if this word can be found in dictionary.com or wikipedia.org. Hahahahaha!
I am the kind of mother who teaches her kids to be who they are without worrying about what others think. If I was permitted to say the word, I would tell my kids, "F*** the others! Don't listen to them, listen to yourself. In fact, don't even listen to me. I can't tell you what you like to do for the rest of your life, you'll have to find that out for yourself."
And yet, Asian mentality is.....well, like this. I think I was born in the wrong country. 
I am all for the free world, even if some people try to force me to be a certain way, they will fail. They managed to make my life miserable for a while, to be honest, but it didn't last. THANK GOD! 
Look at me....I am with a law degree but I write for a living. I conjure up stories, write non-fiction, promote people and brands and products with the words that I string together instead of arguing a petty thief out of a terrible sentence. Although it would have been more meaningful (and made my father feel better) if I chose to do the latter, but it would be so wrong for me. I would lead a terribly horrible existance. 
I am sure my father's forgiven me for that.....as long as he could live telling everyone that his daughter is a law graduate, he'll live. :-)
So, to all ferrari cars out there, don't mind me.....this Kelisa is just going to stroll along over here. Please say 'hi' to me every time you pass me, alright?

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore.

There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me.

For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media.

Since we were more like partners in crime, I f…

Grilled Salmon With Unagi Sauce

I always disagree with people who say that they are lazy to cook, it's too hard, no time, too difficult, easier to eat out....etc. I can't agree because I have found multiple ways to cook simple, cheap meals without causing too much of a ruckus to my schedule. All it takes is a little bit of planning ahead and research. And a sense of humor when it turns out...to put it nicely...sucks.

Anyway, here's one simple one that ANYONE (kids included) can cook up. Seriously simple and easy.


I love salmon but my kids don't like the smell and texture. But that doesn't mean that I can't go out to the market and spend RM11 on ONE single piece of salmon fish and make MYSELF one, right? Kids can have the overnight pizza. :-)
This is fresh from the market....man oh man! I LOVE IT!!
Wash it properly, de-bone the thing if you want to but I just left everything the way it is and just covered the fish with some of the following:-

Yup, salt, pepper and McCormick's season-all powder…

It's The Hormones Slinging All Over Ryan Gosling

Every time I do this, you know I'm PMS-ing. I am usually quite sane and well-behaved. I promise you this. But..... After watching The Notebook, I am fully convinced that Ryan Gosling is not a man. He's sex. Pure sex. And love, of course. I knew that.I love Ryan Gosling whether he looks like he just woke up on an island....ESPECIALLY when he's half-naked!!!!I love him even if he's kissing someone other than me (who he SHOULD be kissing)I love him even when he's got literally no hair.I love him eventhough without the beard thing, he looks like a schoolboy still growing out his pubic hair.I love Ryan Gosling to the core and then you tell me one other thing to make me fall in love with him even more! I feel signs of a mild heart attack already!He plays the piano. He sings. And he sings to KIDS for Halloween!I mean.....aawwwwww......how come we good women who are only sometimes a teeny weeny bit (and I mean really tiny bit) bitchy never get one of these? What?! We DO …
